if its a constant 60fps then no, but lots of people run with vsync off (since it can introduce input lag) - and anything above 60fps theres screen tearing @60hz...65fps on a 120hz display will still look better cuz of no tearing.

Well, I ordered the X-Rite CMUNDIS ColorMunki Display. I'll let you guys know if I like it when it gets here and I'll upload some ICC profiles.

I understand that, but if the fps is lower than 60, would there be any difference compared to a higher refresh rate? Only a couple of my games make it higher than 60fps(aside from older titles) so I am trying to justify a reason for or against returning mine and trying for another that may be able to overclock(mine cannot go past 60hz without issues).

Still yes. Since the screen is refreshing more times in a second, you get the next frame faster, so the input lag is reduced. Though this isn't massively pronounced, the biggest effect is far less tearing, you don't have no use vsync anymore. Been using a 120Hz monitor for a year, its always in 120Hz mode but alot of the time just cap my games to 60FPS rather than bounce between 120 and 60.

My Qnix has just cleared customs, hopefully I can get it on a Saturday delivery. biggrin.gif

No, there would be no perceivable difference if you are running at 60FPS. Less input lag is a weak argument, the screen will display as fast as the source allows. How would it display it faster if the GPU has not provided new data?

True about the input lag, but false about the tearing. (try to enable or force triple-buffering to help with any input lag with v-sync on)

Even if your FPS was below a monitor's refresh rate, disabling v-sync can still cause tearing to occur although a higher refresh rate can mean less chance of tearing. It is like console games that run at 30fps but constantly have tearing problems.

Well im not sure that it not being overclockable is eligable for a refund? And no there´s no difference between a 60 hz monitor and a 120hz monitor at that low fps, the only difference is that you will be used to 120hz if you have it so it will feel a lot more unnatural than if you would be used to 60hz.

Nope..lower than your refresh rate shouldnt look different. Unless your running double buffer vsync, then anything below 60fps will drop down to a multiple of 60, which is 30fps. On a 120hz display, i suppose anything lower than 120fps will drop down to 60fps.

I think as long as you use triple buffer or vysnc off, lower than 60fps will look the same on a 60hz or 120hz if all other factors are the same

Thanks guys, problem solved. +rep to both of you.

Hi. I received the Qnix monitor last week and I can't believe I've gone this long at lower resolutions. Anyway, I bought this mount based on the FAQ in the OP...

http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=108&cp_id=10828&cs_id=1082808&p_id=5970&seq=1&format=2

But it looks like the screws don't fit. Am I supposed to get a hold of shorter screws?
